Oh my goodness, the summer growing season is winding down. I, for one, am so sorry to see it go. I love having such an abundance of fresh produce each week. This should be the last week for tomatoes, I am looking forward to more turnips and greens, with the change in the weather, I find myself craving heartier, more slow cooked meals. I can’t believe today is the first day of fall, where did the summer go?
As you can see, this week our share included:
The hubby is craving stuffed peppers so I will be using peppers, carrots, and the tomatoes to make those later this week. I used the watermelon to make myself a watermelon margarita and the salad greens, radishes, and one of the tomatoes went into a salad at dinner one night.
Sadly, my schedule at work will be getting even more intense, so I declined the winter share sign up, the pick up days just don’t work for me. I will be sad to not see my farming family each week, but they will be selling at the local farmers market, so I will still have an opportunity to pick up produce from them. Happy Fall…
